Rejection. Ugh! Many of us have been devoured by its ravages, and most of us have also given it out. Praise. Now there's a happier word! But the sinister tentacles of man's praise constantly seek to disqualify God's servants from their highest inheritance.
Rejection and Praise are like twin gullies that flank the narrow highway of holiness. Every step counts. For Jesus, man’s opinions were meaningless in light of the exuberant affection and passionate approval of His Father. Learn how to hold your heart before God in a way that pleases Him in the midst of both rejection and praise from people.
